Our Route to Statehood

History

New California State was formed in 2017 and on January 15, 2018 declared Independence from the state of California following Article IV, Section 3 of the United States Constitution. In the New California State declaration there are 95 Grievances which list the reasons why New Californians are seeking independence from the state of California.

Over the course of 96 weeks since the reading of the January 15, 2018 declaration of Independence New Californians read 95 grievances.

On November 19, 2019 New Californians gathered together around the state to read the final 95th Grievance.

Constitutional Authority To Act
According to Article IV Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution “New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union”.
Read Article IV

The U.S. Declaration of independence also states that “whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government”
Read The U.S. Declaration of Independence

Process of Splitting California

Our Organization has laid out 95 Grievances as proof of a government that no longer represents or protects this current State. With the inaction of the Governor or Representatives our Organization has been forced to declare independence from the state of California.
Read The New California Declaration of Independence

Once New California is recognized as the governing body of the State New California will proceed with the separation process. The process begins when a state’s legislature first votes to split the state. Once the measure in the form of a resolution passes both the California Assembly and Senate, it is submitted to Congress.

Governance

No State has been brought into the Union who could not demonstrate their ability
to govern themselves. New California will demonstrate a governance system as
modeled by the U.S. Declaration of Independence, Constitution and the Bill of
Rights.

Establishment of Local Governance

County Committees will be established in all counties who would like to join the
New California State Movement. These County Committees will serve as local
governance centers and will be directly involved with the New California State
movement activities. Representatives from each county will be selected to
represent their respective counties on the Council of counties Committee. The
County Committees will be instrumental in establishing local autonomy and
outreach in their respective counties. County Committees will serve as the basis
for a Legislature.

Establishment of State Governance

Council of Counties Committee is comprised of representatives from the County
Committees. The Council will be tasked to establish a Legislature, Judiciary,
Executive, Declaration of Independence and Constitution for New California.

Legislature

Established by the Council of Counties Committee the New California Legislature
will be tasked with representation of their respective counties to the Legislature
and will be actively engaged in all matters leading to statehood at the State of
California and Federal levels. The Legislature will be established as a part time
legislature.

Judicial

New California will follow a judiciary established by the New California State
Constitution and will be in full compliance with United States of America
Jurisprudence.

Executive

New California will elect a Governor according to the provisions in the New
California Constitution

Declaration of Independence

In order to have a viable New California Constitution the Declaration of
Independence for New California must work in tandem with the New California
Constitution. A day of Independence will be declared to declare our intent to
separate from the State of California following the provisions of Article 4 Section
3 of the United States Constitution. The Day of Independence will be the first
step to in the process necessary to establish the New California Constitutional
Convention. The Declaration Process will serve as the Will of the People in New
California.

Constitution

During the 40 week process of the Declaration a Constitutional Convention will
be convened with the representative of Counties of New California. The New
California Constitution will be consistent with the United States Constitution and
the Declaration of Independence. Ratification of the New California Constitution
will serve as the Will of the People in New California.
